What should I do about my 401K and other investments?

If you can handle a reduction in pay for a few paychecks, consider increasing your contributions while the market is lower. Maintain your risk tolerance.

 

What should I do with my stimulus check?

  • Use it to live on if need be.
  • Pay down debt.
  • Add to your emergency fund.

 

Is now a good time to buy life insurance?

Now is a good time to buy life insurance because of more lenient underwriting. They are often not requiring labs or even doctors records if you have a clean history, though they may still conduct a phone interview. Every insurance company has different rules during this time, so please reach out if you are interested.

 

What should I do if I can’t pay my rent or mortgage?

  • Rent: Every landlord is different, so reach out to him or her and ask the question.
  • Mortgage:  Most lenders are allowing a 90-day deferral and up to 6 months. Please call your mortgage company for details.
